Downloaded a free Photoshop brush set at grutbrushes.com the other day and immediately began painting after I got them set-up.  The whole reason I got this set was for the Impasto brush, but they had a couple other winners in there too.

I’ve always enjoyed how the impasto style was so thick and rich in textures, regardless of the subject matter of the painting.  Here, I was just playing around and getting use to how the brush flowed at different opacity settings and the like, but at the same time I kinda wanted to work on intimating some of that same thickness and texture.

I’m looking forward to painting some loose portraits with this brush sometime in the future.  Until then.  Enjoy the Journey.
